DUKE'S PLACE - THE FARMHOUSE

Summary

Duke's Place Farmhouse is the stunning centre piece of this sympathetically developed farm complex. This Georgian farmhouse has spacious living accommodation and a dining room to seat 10 people, which makes it a super location for gatherings of friends and family.

Accommodation

The house has been recently refurbished to the highest standard but retains much of its period charm. There is a welcoming hall with a large bench to take off those muddy boots from exploring the glorious Yorkshire countryside on your doorstep!  Off the hall to the right is a useful cloakroom with WC.  To the left of the spacious hall is a spacious kitchen with a large range cooker,  authentic butchers block and door to the shared courtyard.

Next door to the kitchen is a baronial themed dining room with a large welcoming fire - just perfect for long sociable evenings with views over the gardens and to the countryside beyond.

A door opens to the garden and a reception room across a small hall is a perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks.

Two further sitting rooms close to the dining room, the largest of which is perfect for kicking back and relaxing with comfy sofas, a log burner and TV. The smaller garden room is perfect for curling up with a good book and leads onto a small patio overlooking the extensive gardens. 

Up the wide staircase to four double bedrooms and four bathrooms. The master room can be described as a suite, entered by a long corridor under the eaves, where a sofa bed is located (can be utilised for a charge of £25) leading to a large bedroom with double four-poster bed, wall mounted Smart TV and en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower, wash basin and toilet. The views from this room overlook the garden and open fields.  This suite would be perfect for a family.

The Garden Room is a bright and light double room with wall mounted TV,  overlooking the garden.  Ensuite shower room with wash basin and toilet.  A further double room to the front of the property enjoys glorious views from a characterful window seat, next to the house bathroom (on two levels) comprising roll top bath, separate shower, wash basin and toilet.

A fourth bedroom overlooks the courtyard and boasts a double half tester bed (like a 4-poster bed with a small wooden canopy), a wall mounted TV and antiques, including an old jockey's weighing seat! En-suite shower room, wash basin and toilet.

Facilities

Patio area overlooking the gardens. Beautiful large garden and summer house which can be rotated to enjoy the sun and views. The kitchen is well equipped with a range cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer. Oil central heating throughout the property, a log burner and open fires.  SMART TVs in the lounge and all the bedrooms. Ample parking. Free WiFi (please be mindful you are in the country and may not be as quick as town).  Double sofa bed available by prior arrangement at a cost of £25.  Families welcome, with a travel cot supplied on request - please bring your own cot linen and highchair. 

Please note that this property is unable to accept hen parties. Please note that this property does not take arrivals on Sunday.
